  1. check the motherboard maker website to see if the processor is supported.
  2. In all likelihood, you will not be able to use your C2D CPU in a more modern motherboard. To verify, each manufacturer provides a list of compatible CPUs for their motherboards. Simply look up the make and model of motherboard you are considering and look at the associated support website for CPU compatibility.

    Good luck!
  3. Ddr4 isn't even out yet, probably won't be til next year. I hope you aren't mixing it up with gddr (graphics card ram) which is irrelevant when it comes to compatibility. There is really no point in getting a new mobo just for new ram. Your cpu is what will hold you back. The ram speed hardly affects anything.
